I work with adults using humanistic and existential approaches. This means I view emotional distress and troublesome behaviors as natural human reactions to common life challenges. Despite conventional wisdom, there is no scientific evidence that they are dysfunctions of the mind or brain. Instead, they are personal, spiritual, political, financial, moral, and existential challenges that we all face. They can be very emotionally disruptive, but rest assured, there is nothing wrong with you or your brain. Calling them "mental illnesses" or "disorders" is very misleading and potentially harmful.

Most of us would like to lead beautiful lives, but beauty is an elusive dance partner for the individual who is holding anger and resentment. I offer an individual anger management class. (The Pinnacle Center also offers a group class online.) The class I offer is designed for individuals who want to take the class in-person or who prefer an individual setting as opposed to a group. Since it is an individual program, I can design the individual class to meet the particular needs and schedule of the person enrolling. This individual anger management class is designed to be equivalent to a a 12-week group anger management class.

Hey Wonder-Woman! It truly is a wonder how you wear so many hats, saving so many people, juggling so many tasks. Are you feeling worn down and burnt out? Are you struggling with friendships or having trouble connecting with your partner intimately? Feeling like your love-life is non-existent? Are you starting to feel stuck, empty, or unmotivated; maybe even anxious, plagued with worry, and overwhelmed? It can feel quite unbearable when all these emotions and racing thoughts are filling your daily life. You want to feel peace in your mind, heart, and relationships, but instead you feel turmoil; I understand.

As an experienced psychotherapist, I believe in integrating various therapeutic approaches that will allow a person to restructure their thoughts and behaviors through practical cognitive principles. My therapeutic approach is based upon the “whole person concept”, considering the importance of individual, cultural, family, and communal variables within the lives of clients seeking therapy. Therapy is not a "one-size-fits-all" journey, and it can be a challenge to overcome the societal stigmas associated with seeking mental health treatment.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors.

Many have been licensed by the country or state where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counseling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counselor?

Therapists, psychologists, and counselors are all licensed mental health professionals. In the US, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counselor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counselors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.

Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counselor who can offer short-term, targeted support.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

How much does therapy cost?

The cost of therapy depends on a number of variables, including location and the therapist’s experience and training. On average, a therapy session in the United States could cost between $100 and $200 or more. If you have insurance, the expense of mental health care is typically lower, but it varies based on your insurance plan details and whether you choose an in-network or out-of-network mental healthcare provider.

What are more affordable or low cost therapy solutions?

Many therapists offer sliding scale payments, usually on a limited number of slots, which consists in an agreement between the therapist and a client to pay a reduced rate. Therapists who provide such arrangements often consider the client's income or ability to pay, but the extent of the discount is ultimately at the therapist's discretion. Furthermore, while group therapy may have different goals and benefits compared to individual therapy, it can be a more affordable solution to address certain types of issues.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your zip code.

Are therapy sessions confidential?

Confidentiality is a crucial part of the therapeutic relationship. Therapists in the United States are bound by the regulations set out by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), which aims to protect sensitive health information. With very few exceptions, a therapist will only discuss their client with others when the client has given their written permission. The instances in which a therapist would be required to disclose personal information are: if a client poses a danger to themselves or others, if the therapist suspects the abuse of a child or an elderly or otherwise dependent adult, or if they are legally forced to by court order. These exceptions to the confidentiality agreement are usually discussed with a client before their first session.
